[video] Los Angeles Car Chase Suspects , Take Selfies, Do Doughnuts, & hit TMZ Bus

These dudes were definitely on one.

On Sunset, with no police behind them, the driver began doing doughnuts in the middle of the street, spinning across all lanes of traffic and forcing other cars to stop. The car then moved onto Hollywood Boulevard, where countless tourists got to see the Mustang drive against traffic by the TCL Chinese Theatre and Hollywood Walk of Fame.

From there, it was up to the Hollywood Hills, where the Mustang drove into opposite lanes around blind curves, narrowly missing oncoming traffic, and fishtailed on rain-slick roads.

Without any vehicles close behind, the driver drove back through Hollywood’s tourist district and onto the freeway, where it was almost trapped by a TMZ tour bus that cut off its path as it tried to split two lanes.

Don Cornelius Gets Booked in L.A.

via CNN

LOS ANGELES, California (AP) — Don Cornelius, the former host of the television show “Soul Train,” was arrested on suspicion of domestic violence, police said Saturday.

Police were called to his Hollywood Hills home late Friday after someone reported a domestic dispute, Officer Sam Park said.

The 72-year-old producer was taken to jail, where he was booked for investigation of felony domestic violence, Park said. He was released on $50,000 bail and ordered to appear in court next month.

Park said he did not know whom Cornelius was suspected of assaulting.

A call to Cornelius’ production office was not immediately returned.

Cornelius started “Soul Train” in 1970 to showcase black music and culture, introducing television audiences to such legendary artists as Aretha Franklin, Marvin Gaye and Barry White. The series spawned a franchise that includes the Soul Train Music Awards, the Soul Train Lady of Soul Awards and the Soul Train Christmas Starfest.

Cornelius stepped down as “Soul Train” host in 1993.

Minor Earthquake Hits Los Angeles

Now this has got to be the most ironic thing today. I am actually out here in L.A. and my homie Robin Hood (South Central) was saying that it is not supposed to be this hot in L.A. He then stated with conviction that it was probably an earthquake.

My other peeps I am shacking with(native NY’ers) did not like this at all and talked of bolting L.A. and heading back to the safe confines of NYC. We did not feel anything and went back to bbq’ing and recording music.

I start blogging and run into this story. Robin Hood then says “I know my city!!” Well hopefully we don’t get anything major but if we do I will have the camera rolling but I will be under a table though!!

LA Immigration Detention Center Erupts In Riot

Immigrants Packed In Like Sardines

One of our favorite shows at STREET KNOWLEDGE is MSNBC’s Lock Up, not because it glamorizes prison life, no because they are highlighting a reality that America shouldn’t smirk from and that is her prisons are swelling with over 2 million bodies, many of them “black” and “brown” folk.

Over in LA the hot-button issue is immigration and as you can imagine their penal system has an influx of immigration cases, with thousands designated to be deported back to some area on the globe that they unlawfully migrated from.

One of those facilities, the Mira Loma Detention Center in Lancaster, CA home to over 900 detainees erupted in riots on Tuesday (4/22) with hundreds of inmates involved in rival gang fighting.

Authorities quelled the riot within minutes, by firing tear gas on rival factions. They continue to study how to stem the problem of “gangs” intermingling in these institutions. Over 45 of the detainees were confirmed to be involved with gang activity. Detainees accused of wrong doing were spread throughout the system to other facilities.

‘Daddy’s Shadow’ is not “Doctor” recommended

Like Father Like Son…well in this case, like daughter.  Dr. Dre’s babygirl, Manaj wants to follow in her daddy’s footsteps and explore a recording career.  She has taken it one step further though and compiled enough footage on her family and super-reclusive father that she is prepping “Daddy’s Shadow” a documentary style expose on the Good Doctor.  Only thing is, Dre ain’t feelin that.  “My dad has cut me off (for) my involvement with the ‘Daddy’s Shadow’ project,” according to Manaj. For those who want to get a preview of this behind-the-scenes DVD, go to www.tmmediagroup.com to see the trailer.

Editor’s Note: As many will remember, little over a year ago a lyricist emerged out West bearing a striking resemblance to the Good Doctor, calling himself Hood Surgeon.  He claimed to be Dre’s son.  According to him, he didn’t receive his father’s blessings either.  Damn, by the sounds of things Dre’s reality show would be more exciting than Snoops on any given Sunday!
